Poetic Inspiration


Robin Williams as Mork

Mork

I happen to be someone who really liked Robin Williams’s work. This is my tribute to this great comedian and actor.

Poetic Inspiration

No sign at all; just a millisecond initialized slip of a heart murmur.
He lived in a realm of constant movement, barrel-jammed
full of incandescent, exo-bizzare ingenious babbel.
He moved in disembodied spheres of contiguous contradiction.
Motivation. Incantation. Ordination. Reassertion.

To him, scintillating appetencies were lustrous sirens.
To him, bulletproof permanence was a trans-empirical
extrasensory momentary contiguous inspiration.
To him, enervative colorful uniqueness knew no caution.
Postulation. Encapsulation. Misdirection. Indiscretion.

His charismatic gaudy self-awareness was boundless.
His abstract dialectical gestures wormed into our imaginations.
Aspects of his reality were inviolable: a Gerbil wheel
to break the dysfunctional dullness of a silent full moon.
The congeners of his tortured reality hominified a final NanU.
Determination. Deliberation. Desperation. Detonation.

Drunken Driving Limerick


Most intoxicated drivers have a false sense of security, since alcohol eliminates people’s inhibitions, they never think they will cause an accident or actually be arrested. Many don’t even realize they are drunk when they get behind the wheel; it takes just a few drinks to push someone over the legal limit.

Drunken Driving Limerick

Drunken driving will always impair
your perception of getting here or there.
It’s a big hullabaloo,
when a policeman stops you,
and you act like you’re walking on air.

Journey With A New Friend


Wilde Beast Bumping Heads

Wilde Beast Bumping Heads

Journey With A New Friend

Each new friend speaks a new language.
Unique histories to share.
So much to say, it’s a traffic stall.

Rare books of knowledge.
Scriptures delineating a process.
Each new friend speaks a new language.

Shared representations?
A journey that is just introduced?
Unique histories to share.

Wilde beast bumping heads
on a prehistoric plain.
So much to say, it’s a traffic stall.

Today’s challenge was to write Chained verse which links together stanzas by carrying a rhyme over from one stanza to the next.

This simply means that you use a rhyme scheme which repeats a rhyme from one stanza in the succeeding stanzas, in this case a pattern of:
a-b-c
d-e-a
f-g-b
h-i-c

Gripping Girdle Limerick


Woman Contortionist Tying Her Corset

Gripping Girdle Limerick

A woman was attempting to tie
as she twisted her torso and thigh.
All guys who are straight
long to take her on a date
because she’s so nimble and spry.

Sleeping Judge Limerick


Judge Yevgeny Makhno of Blagoveshchensk City Court in Russia’s Far East was forced to resign Friday for obviously falling asleep several times while trying a businessman on charges of fraud.

Sleeping Judge Limerick

A magistrate was recently canned
as the defense was taking a stand.
In a former slave state
with a high conviction rate
judges shouldn’t take naps that aren’t planned!

Cinderella Limerick


Prince Contemplating What to Do Next Regarding Glass Slipper

Cinderella Limerick

A prince stepped out into the hall.
he was leaving a very big ball.
He carried her slipper
that fell when he tripped her.
To return it, he must not forestall.

Treasurer Limerick

The Treasurer had to eat crow
when he did not have enough dough
he tried to cut spending
excess borrowing and lending
but the economy just wouldn’t grow.

zealous wives


Beheading an adulteress wife in Saudi Arabia

zealous wives

His zealous wives were suddenly possessed.
Zealous women were guillotined, as demons.
Wives were beheaded then, if caught!
Were guillotined! Then, many punished mercilessly,
suddenly, as if punished relentlessly by
possessed demons, caught mercilessly by Allah.

A 6 x 6 square poem, which is identical either up and down.

His              zealous       wives             were              suddenly       possessed
zealous     women        were              guillotined   as                     demons
wives         were             beheaded    then                if                       caught
were           guillotined then              many              punished       mercilessly
suddenly  as                   if                     punished      relentlessly  by
possessed demons      caught          mercilessly  by                    Allah
